Valda is a small village at the southern slopes of the Monte Novaline mountain and is located at 795 m asl

Valda has preserved the typical architectural style of the ancient villages in the Val di Cembra valley. The several districts are built in the traditional way which is called “cormèl”. Most of the houses have archways and inner courtyards. The village expands along the state road, where also the schools and the presbytery are located. Here daily life takes place.

According to old custom in the Val di Cembra valley Valda has five fountains which were used as drinking toughs and for washing in former times. At the village square the “Fontana del Giubileo” fountain can be found, it was built in celebration of the 60th throne anniversary of Emperor Francis I of Austria in 1908.

Worth seeing is the St. Paulus Church with the stations of the cross. At the church square you can see the forest and further to the Avisio river where the church of Segonzano – a pilgrimage church – is located. Also Lake Valda at 1,300 m asl. is a real oasis of quiet and worth a visit.

Those who like village festivals should not miss the annual “Festa del Lampone” (Raspberry Festival), where the harvest of the grapes and smaller fruits is celebrated.
